IP Connect

Connect your environment to end-users without waiting for a carrier. Instantly provision IP service.

Your business needs connectivity now, not in weeks or months, and IT capacity requirements are difficult to forecast. Yet most providers still don’t deliver quick, flexible or agile business IP to enable enterprises to react quickly to new and often unpredictable digital requirements. This puts enterprises at the risk of either over-provisioning bandwidth and incurring unnecessary costs or under-provisioning and not being able to meet business requirements.

How It Works

IP Connect is delivered over our Digital Exchange. When deploying, customers choose an initial Committed Information Rate (CIR), with options to configure for bursting. Utilization over the CIR is subject to an overage charge, but customers may adjust their CIR at any time via the Cyxtera Command Center.

Routing

Cyxtera offers multiple protocols to support specific routing and access requirements:

Bring Your Own IP (BYOIP)

BYOIP gives you complete control over your IP reputation, simplifies adding IP Connect to your existing network infrastructure, and helps you navigate compliance and regulatory policies. In addition to standard static default routing, you can also bring you your own IPv4 public addresses and add Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). You may provide your own public Anonymous System Number ( ASN ) or we can provide a Cyxtera-owned ASN during provisioning. Route advertisement types can be further configured in the Command Center or via API.

Private IP Security and Remote Access (NAT and VPN)

Use our advanced functions for Network Address Translation (NAT) for private IP security. Allow multiple devices to access the Internet through a single public address and eliminate address renumbering when your network evolves. NAT can also be used for VPN tunneling to enable remote access to your company’s servers and network.

Order IP Connect

If you’re an existing Digital Exchange customer, order IP Connect directly from within the Command Center. If you’re new to Cyxtera, you can contact us for more information.
